The Victory of Faith (1933) is the first documentary film directed by Leni Riefenstahl. It documents the Fifth NSDAP Nuremberg Congress shortly after the party came to power
The film includes Ernst RÃ¶hm, head of the SA and, at the time, the second most powerful man within the Nazi Party. Less than a year later, RÃ¶hm attempted, along with other top SA members, a military coup against the elected government of Hitler. The film Triumph des Willens was produced to replace this one and follows a similar script.
